What a pain!!

A window cleaner got stuck today on the 72nd floor of The Shard, the UK's tallest building.  It is due to be opened officially on Thursday.

Re: What a pain!!

The "Shard  of Glass" lives up to its name when you have early morning winter sun playing on its glass walls. From a distance you see a shining sword thrusting up from the "City". Before the pedants leap in, I know it is a couple of hundred feet outside of the city.
I just wonder what the Shard window cleaners do when they are in "distress" after an iffy curry and too much lager on the previous night
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Why do you think they start at the top and work down?
